[ August 17, 2018   //   ]

The Kansas City Area Development Council (KCADC) announces that Turn5, an award-winning eCommerce retailer, will open a new distribution center in the Kansas City metro area. The new operation is a 365,000-square-foot space located in Lenexa.

Turn5’s Kansas City area office will serve as an extension of its fulfillment operations that offer aftermarket automotive products to the company’s clients nationwide.

“Kansas City offers a strong advantage for a company like Turn5,” said Tim Cowden, president and CEO, Kansas City Area Development Council, “The region’s central location and infrastructure mean 85 percent of the U.S. population can be reached from Kansas City within two days or less. That equals huge value for eCommerce fulfillment.”

Turn5 maintains its growth by keeping relationships with car manufacturers, vendors, customers, civic organizations and collaborative partners. Turn5’s leadership and its employees work collaboratively with leading minds in both technology and the automotive aftermarket, positioning the company at the industry’s forefront for years to come.

Turn5 is one of many companies choosing the Kansas City area for distribution centers. In 2017, Kansas City saw growth in distribution and fulfillment facilities from 100,000 to 1.2 million square feet, which included eCommerce companies like Amazon and Hy-Vee Aisles, major retailers like Dollar Tree, and companies like Spectrum Brands and Horizon Global.
